You guys educate me on this... I thought that the weight divisions were based on weight limits, as opposed to hard ranges. Is that incorrect?

For example, if Silva wanted to fight at LHW while weighing in at 199lbs, he is free to do so, no? He simply couldn't weigh in over 206 and still fight at LHW, right?

Similarly, he could potentially fight at HW while weighing in at 204lbs if he wanted to.... or 190lbs for that matter. I'm not touching on any of the pros or cons of maintaining speed versus bringing in muscle...not getting into that arguement here...simply asking about the weight class limitations.

Do I understand correctly or am I misinformed?

You are correct as far as I know. The limits are maximum only. If someone wants to weight in under the weight range I don't think there is any rule against it but sanctioning might be an issue. Athletic commissions won't sanction, in theory, obvious mismatches.
